Shek O, Hong Kong

(4.3/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
A contrast to Hong Kong's tall skyscrapers and big business, the seaside village of Shek O shows the island's other side: pleasant beaches, a relaxed pace, and nature to explore. The area is even home to a prehistoric rock carving, depicting geometric designs and animals. Seemingly untouched by the arrival of the British, this little town has a stronger Chinese feel to it, with narrow lanes, colorful houses, and small temples. A hike up to a popular viewpoint affords a panoramic view of the coastline below. To visit Shek O and other attractions in Hong Kong, use our Hong Kong itinerary maker.

  • 寒流來襲,我還是決定帶訪港好友來這,除了石澳海灘、街道、礁石的美,從筲箕灣到這裡一路的風景也是可圈可點。 天冷的好處是遊客也少,即使是假日也不例外。果然,朋友非常喜歡今日的行程安排。  more »
